A loan helped to buy cost efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season.

Saratis' Group's story

Pictured above is Saratis, a father to five children and known by his community as a very hardworking individual. As group leader, he is representing his group formed by 13 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Initially, Saratis joined One Acre Fund in 2013 because he wanted to earn enough to feed his family. Since he joined the program he says that his life has improved, especially because he has been able to consistently feed his family.

With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Saratis plans to send his children to school.

Between the 13 farmers in Saratis's Group a total of 10 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light, so with this loan the group will also receive a total of one solar light.
